Scenes from the suburbs. Spike Jonze for Arcade Fire

Dopo la collaborazione con Terry Gilliam per la regia del loro live e quella con Chris Milk per il video interattivo “We used to wait”, la band canadese coinvolge un altro pilastro della cinematografia “indie” nell’elaborazione di un cortometraggio ispirato ai temi del loro ultimo album “The Suburbs”. Spike Jonze non è distante dalla scena musicale e soprattutto dagli Arcade Fire, già inseriti nella colonna sonora del suo film “Where the wild things are”. Questa volta arricchisce i testi del Best Album Grammy Awards 2011 con la sua originalissima regia. Un gruppo di ragazzini, che cresce nella periferia di un futuro che è diventato realtà, viene sconvolto da una battaglia militare tra violenza e oppressione psicologica. Il paesaggio cambia e così anche i sogni di questi kids. Scritto dai fratelli Will e Win Butler e dallo stesso regista, nel film compaiono i componenti del gruppo uniti dalla voce narrante di Win. In attesa di vederli sul palco milanese (5 luglio) e lucchese (9 luglio), possiamo goderci lo short movie qui.
